Members of Lincolnshire Co-op have raised £17,856 for volunteer lifesavers just by doing their shopping.

To celebrate its 45th year, Lincolnshire Integrated Voluntary Emergency Services (LIVES) has been nominated as Lincolnshire Co-op’s Community Champion in outlets across the county.

Until 6th June, every time they use their dividend card in any Lincolnshire Co-op outlets where points are issued, a donation from the Community Champions pot will go to LIVES or their equivalent local First Responder group.
